Nominations for the North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards are now open

The North West LGBTQ+ Business Awards return this year to celebrate the best the community has to offer.

However, before they can begin, they need potential winners to be named.

Anyone can apply or nominate someone for the awards as long as they are a member of the LGBTQ+ community or are allied with the community.

As always, awards such as the Top Employer Award and the LGBTQ+ Ally Award will be presented to worthy winners.

This year will also include three new categories: Entrepreneurship Award, Best Social Networker Award, and LGBTQ+ Networker of the Year Award.

Managing Director Drew Cockton told ECHO: “People can expect a glitzy, completely ‘over the top’ red carpet vibe from the awards.

“We went all out last year with our decor, as did our guests with their outfits. Many awards parties can be very bland and corporate, but the LGBTQ+ Business Awards won’t be.”

Drew explained that after the difficult few years it has been for businesses due to Covid, that it is more important than ever “to support and champion all of their achievements and especially LGBTQ+ owned businesses and people who unfortunately continue to face discrimination and challenges despite recent progress.”

He continued: “After the spate of homophobic attacks in Liverpool last year and the irresponsible actions of high profile City ambassadors, we need to send a clear message that Liverpool and the wider North West region welcome and support marginalized members of society and prejudice will not be tolerated.”

The ceremony will be held at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool on Friday October 22, 2022.
